Husband Shoots Two Bank Robbery Suspects Who Kidnapped Him, His Wife


It happened in Texas.

A free citizen under siege by two criminals defended himself and his wife by force of arms.

Will Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, or Barack Hussein Obama now lecture us about the evils of guns? Will they tell us that they could have been these two kidnap victims who fought back?

Will The New York Times cover this story?

No, no, and no.

The race hustlers and gun control advocates will never acknowledge that the Second Amendment is a constitutional, G-d given right that allows free citizens to stay free from the tyranny of government and the tyranny of criminals.

COLUMBUS, Texas — Two bank robbery suspects were shot in Colorado County Thursday night by a man who said they kidnapped him and his wife, a bank employee.

According to the Colorado County Sheriff’s Office, the couple had been held at gunpoint by the suspects inside their home just north of Columbus. They were then forced to drive to the First National Bank of Eagle Lake in Columbus.

The suspects then forced the woman to take out an undisclosed amount of funds, investigators said.

“We believe they had knowledge that she was an employee of the bank for them to be at the residence and to take her back,” Sgt. Andrew Weido with the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office said.

He said the suspects then forced the husband to drive them in his truck south down Highway 71, and that’s when the husband of the bank employee was able to gain access to a firearm inside the vehicle.

He fired at the suspects near County Road 101. Authorities then responded to a 911 call from the scene at 7:30 p.m. with the Columbus Police Department arriving first.

When they arrived, officers found the two suspects with gunshot wounds lying on the ground near a pickup that was parked in a ditch.

One of the wounded, 20-year-old Jordan Kutach, was airlifted to Memorial Hermann Hospital in critical condition. The other, 21-year-old Preston Kutach, was taken by EMS to the Columbus Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Both suspects lived in the community of Rock Island and neighbors said they were brothers.

The bank’s president, Sam Kana, tells KHOU 11 News he is thankful and blessed that the couple was not hurt.

Those who know them said the husband is a reserve officer with the sheriff’s department and that the community has their back.

“I’m sure that they’re both going to be upset for awhile,” resident Brenda Buehler said. “It’s a frightening thing to have happen, but I think everybody’s going to tell them good job.”

“It’s very positive to a community to hear that the good guy does win in the end,” resident Evan Mullins said.

“It could have turned out so much worse,” store owner Debbie Damon said.

Investigators said the couple did not know their attackers, and it is unclear how they became targets.
They are not releasing their names, or surveillance video, which they said captures some of the crime still in progress.

The Texas Rangers will be assisting with the sheriff’s investigation.

Comment Rules

Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    Mr. Avrech,
    Did you see this over at Legal Insurrection?  It’s a Texas post, not about foolish bank robbers, but I think you will get a grin out of it, especially having visited our state recently:
    Best wishes,

    Had this happened in Chicago the husband would have been immediately locked up and a vigil would have been organized for the “victims”. 
    Al Sharpton will speak up as soon as he can figure out a way to blame the shootings on the Stand Your Ground law. Because apparently there were no problems in the world before states passed their SYG laws.

    If you belong to the NRA they have a page full of these incidents each issue – from all over the country – never reported of course, by the MSM.
    In other news, the Washington Post will be sold to Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. As one said if these people actually covered the news in an objective and perceived fair manner, they wouldn’t be in the trouble that they are in.

    That worked out as well for those two robbers as the two murdering burglars who came up against a twelve year old girl with a shotgun. She was a junior trap shooting champion.

    This seems like the way it is supposed to work.
